New Computer! 
10/1/07, 8:14 pm
My current computer is dying a horrible death. It crashes around twice per evening of website design work, and I have to leave it for half an hour to cool down before I can turn it on again. It's had a good life, served me well, but it's ready to move on to a better place.

Filling its void will be a spangly new thing, built by my own fair hand from a list of cunningly chosen components. I must say, I'm rather excited about it all, if a little nervous that i'll break something in the process of making it. Anyway, just to make you jealous, this is what it's going to be made from:

Case - CoolerMaster Stacker 830
Motherboard - Asus P5WDH Deluxe
Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 2.13GHz
Power Source - Coolermaster iGreen 600W PSU
RAM - OCZ 2GB DDR2 800
Graphics Card - Connect3D X1900GT 256MB
Hard Disk - SATA2/300 250Gb 7200rpm 16MB Cache

Well, the last batch of photos of the CCRC dinner seemed fairly well received so I thought i'd put a few more up...
See some snaps from the
fours head of the river, scullers head of the river and the CCRC christmas head...

Pants

Yes, pants. I just missed the bus :( Running a trial of new enzymes, so I had to finish making up that one last plate before I went home, as the enzymes would have died overnight. Ran like a spaz for the bus to see the empty road. And now i'm sat at work, meant to be at the boat club for an outing in 4 minutes :o@

And as if that wasn't bad enough, just checked my days leave, and I can't get back to the 'shire until the evening of the 22nd, and back to work on the 2nd Jan. Which sucks. I think i prefer the 4 weeks granted to university students...

CCRC Dinner '06 
16/11/06, 12:51 am
Had a manic day on Saturday, raced twice in the morning and won twice :D (even if we had no competition in the second race :P). Just about had time for a cup of tea, then ended up back at the bar and onto Jesus college for the annual dinner.
Think a good night was had by all - you can see the evidence here... (or through the photos page)
